It was a 50th Birthday surprise for my partner. She loved it, had an excellent time and the whole experience was professional from the start. Special mention to the pilots, Jono and Matt. The hosts at Middle Rock Station were great too. Worth every penny!

my father was visting and in a previous life he had been a British helicopter pilot. At 84 it had been many years ago but he still talked about it with a passion. As a surprise i rang the team (4-5 times) to say i want it to be the ultimate experience. Although older he still knew what it was about and I didnt want it to be spent all about showing him what he already knew but just outdated. The team were UNBELIEVABLE ! The office to the pilot Jono continued to assure me it would be the ultimate experience for him and then some. I cried when I saw him take off and then hovering above me, flying himself. They took off to the hills where he did multi landings and re-experienced his past. Thank you ALL so much. you made one family very very happy. Pre Covid so didnt need all the sanitizing that is now required.

This was on my bucket list and it was excellent from start to finish. Great business location, spacious site and spacious modern building. Newish Heli for flight and another older larger one on ground to view. Great friendly and informative staff, the flight was awesome, great views and commentary from pilot, felt safe and secure all the time. Thank you, yahoo!

Was fascinating experience to see and photograph Christchurch city and Lyttelton harbor form a Helicopter, enjoyed the ride and the pilot was very kind (and professional) to circulate around places of interest to allow me to photograph the harbor and city center.

On a bluebird day, our pilot, Juliette, made us feel completely at ease, and provided us with an amazing experience. Everyone we dealt with at Garden City Helicopters went out of their way to make this a truly enjoyable event. Thanks, Juliette, and everyone else involved, for a great time.
